End of Game SLOB: Need 2 (Lob)

I recently watched some video from last year’s Brayden Carr Foundation Coaching Clinic run by coach Jim Carr. This play came from the legendary John Lucas and is a very simple sideline out-of-bounds play from the side that gives you a lob. Main goal of this action is to get the lob to 5 at the rim. However, if the defense takes away the lob you have 4 cutting hard to the top for a catch & shoot as well.

San Antonio Spurs SLOB Zipper Quick (EOQ)

With 3 seconds left in the 3rd quarter of Game 3 of the 2014 NBA Finals, the San Antonio Spurs ran this sideline out-of-bounds play. As soon as 1 cleared Diaw’s shoulder he shaped up back to the ball immediately to receive the pass from Green. Green was able to get a shot off but Miami’s defense prevent him from getting a clean look and the shot came up short.

The San Antonio Spurs ran this sideline out-of-bounds play during Game 6 of the 2014 Western Conference Finals vs the OKC Thunder. Ginobili (1) did a tremendous job selling his cut off 2 (creating small separation) before sprinting off the screen from Duncan (5) for the catch & shoot 3-poiner.

Down 3 at the end of Game 5 of the 2014 EC Semi-Finals, Jason Kidd drew up this sideline out-of-bounds play for the Brooklyn Nets. This was a great action which incorporated multiple screen the screener actions. However, Johnson (4) was unable to get a shot off as Miami deflected the ball out-of-bounds on the catch.

Chicago Bulls SLOB Box Loop #NBAPlayoffs

Late in game 4 of the 2014 Playoffs the Chicago Bulls were in need of a score as they trailed the Washington Wizards. Tom Thibodeau drew up this sideline out of bounds play in a timeout which resulted in a mid-range jumper from Carlos Boozer. This is a great play as it gives you multiple quick inbound and scoring options.
